The 'That '70s Show' reboot will be the perfect indulgence for your nostalgia
Meet 'That '90s Show,' the 'That '70s Show' reboot bringing back Kelso, Jackie and all your faves
Hello, Wisconsin! The anticipated That '70s Show reboot will bring us back to Point Place...with a few tweaks.
Netflix will breathe new life into the Fox sitcom, which earned a place on the ultimate nostalgia TV list and won over countless fans. Ready for what the retro coming-of-age series has in store for us now?
Meet That 90s Show. Yes, it's another decade, but the spinoff will feature the same premise...and faces. It's going to be a common denominator between two generations: those who loved the original, and those who have yet to binge it. (Not to point fingers, but Gen Z.)
“That ’90s Show comes as the latest attempt to reboot the popular show, which premiered in 1998 and ran for eight seasons," Netflix said in a statement, according to The New York Post. "The hit show also inspired the short-lived series That ’80s Show, which ran for just one season in 2002 and made no crossovers with the original 70s cast lineup."
Production for the reboot began in February 2022, and needless to say, loyal fans are ready to park themselves on the couch.
'That '70s Show' reboot: who's who?
You can expect to see a lot of familiar faces in That '90s Show.
"I’m rooting for them. I wish them nothing but the best. And if the timing is right, I’d never say no," show alum Wilmer Valderrama revealed to TVLine about a revival.
Good thing for the show's following, as he kept true to his word and didn't say no. Here's who else is expected to make a return for the next round:
- Topher Grace as Eric Forman
- Mila Kunis as Jackie Burkhart
- Ashton Kutcher as Michael Kelso
- Laura Prepon as Donna Pinciotti
- Wilmer Valderrama as Fez
- Kurtwood Smith as Red
- Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty
Topher Grace is particularly excited, and even donned his Point Place Vikings shirt on Instagram as proof.

Fans will not see Danny Masterson reprise the role of Steven Hyde, as the actor is currently set to go to trial for three count of rape, allegations that he denies. The trial will take place in late August 2022.
'That '90's Show': what's it about?
Fast forward to 1995, and now Erica and Donna have a little one of their own, a teen daughter named Leia. Played by Callie Haverda, Leia is en route to Wisconsin to spend the summer with her grandparents and mix it up with a friend group of her own.

- Ashley Aufderheide
- Mace Coronel
- Maxwell Acee Donovan
- Reyn Doi
- Sam Morelos
